Update – 09/09/2021 – Call Of Duty Vanguard Beta is starting to appear for PlayStation players to pre-load and get themselves ready for the beta weekend!
The Call Of Duty Vanguard Beta is just around the corner and the official Beta schedule has now been released. The Open Beta for Vanguard has been known about since the leaks first starting emerging but it is good to have some official dates to go along with those rumors. The best part is it doesn’t look as though it is just gamers who pre-ordered the game that will be getting access to the beta either, with some free beta drops coming this weekend at the CoD Championships too.
We are going to be looking through the Beta schedule, taking a look at how you can get yourself a Beta code, and how to redeem your beta code when the time comes for the event.
